Make sure your personality is reflected in every aspect of your wedding. You'll be
overwhelmed with opinions and advice but stay true to yourself and your vision of the perfect day. Choosing the perfect dress
sets the tone for every other wedding day detail. You should feel just as confident in choosing a bridal shop to assist you.
Make sure it has an atmosphere you feel comfortable and appreciated
Ali Harrell, Bridal Consultant
As a recent bride,
my best advice is to stay calm and have fun! This is an event that only happens once in your life, and it is easy
to become overwhelmed with all of the details. Make sure to take a breather, and enjoy this time with
friends and loved ones. Remember the hard part, finding the man of your dreams, is done, and the rest will
all fall into place.

best advice, from personal experience, is to stay organized and get ahead. I encourage my brides to order their
dress and book their vendors far in advance. They tend to be the brides that actually enjoy their engagement,
stay calm throughout the process and are ready for their big day. Most importantly, remember to enjoy it! It only
happens once and it should be the best experience of your life. I look forward to working with you and help you make
the most of this wonderful time!

most likely been dreaming about this day all of your life, try to keep an open mind. Your initial ideas might not end
up being the right decision for you. This applies to everything from your choosing the members of your bridal party,
to what food is served at your reception, to what your gown ends up looking like. I came to Wedding Angels with only
one requirement: a gown with no lace on it. Guess what? I ended up with an ALL lace gown. I even ordered
extra lace to make a custom lace veil, and I loved it!
a veil. Or at least promise me you’ll strongly consider it. This is just my personal experience, but for
what it’s worth, my veil was the only thing that grounded me in reality on the day of my wedding. For the entire
day I felt like I was watching someone else. I had planned this event for 18 months, and dreamed of it for years, but
it didn’t feel real! Until my mom put my veil in my hair. That was a moment I’ll always remember,
a crisp snapshot of that day etched in my memory. When Mom stepped back to admire me, eyes brimming with tears of pride
and joy, I saw my reflection in her eyes. I was a bride! From that moment on I was fully present in every second
of that day, and I want that for each of you!
don’t forget why you’re planning a wedding in the first place. It is so frighteningly easy to get swept
up in the logistics of place cards and calligraphers, invitations and bridal showers, bridesmaids’ dresses and family
drama. Remember that you and your fiancée are putting this day together as a celebration of your love for each
other. Turn to each other for support, stay true to yourself and your desires, and don’t underestimate the emotional
roller coaster that the wedding planning process is for all involved! Be patient with yourself, each other, and your
loved ones, and remember this is supposed to be fun! When conflict presents itself, and trust me it will do so often,
ask yourself “will the outcome matter to me in 10 years?” If it will, fight hard to be heard. If it
won’t, let it go, and focus on the amazing journey you are about to embark on with your husband to be. Delight
in the joy that is about to unfold ahead of you!
